Maya Rally FJCThe MAYA RALLY is a multi-week, multi-national, expedition scavenger hunt and challenge course. It pits teams of overland drivers in their own vehicles against one another and the elements, traverses thousands of miles of variable and unknown terrain, enters rarely-seen locations far off the beaten track, and spans countless foreign horizons.

The MAYA RALLY is an overland adventure distilled to its most raw form: there is a start, there are designated challenges which must be completed for points, and there is a finish. Everything else is up to you. There is no route. There is no support. There are few rules. If you break your will, if you break your body, or if you break your ride, you are on your own.

At a remote point deep in the forests of Latin America, at the farthest reaches of your long and perilous journey, we were received by an End of the World celebration in our honor, and if you won, you were recognized with a healthy reward. That is, if you made it. Although, I didn’t come home with a trophy for 1st place, I did come home with a win and awesome experience in my heart!

 

My FJ Cruiser saw and pushed through whatever Mexico threw at her. She was my home…my base…my safe place to fall back to when times were tough and believe me it did get tough! Although an experience like this needs to shared: basically I’m saying take a co-driver! Covering the amount of mileage on an adventure like this truly wears the body, mind, and soul out. The views & foods were awesome; the terrain was rough and the locals unpredictable. But that’s Mexico. Would I do it again….”Yes”!

First of all I want to thank my family for the support and the freedom to make an adventure like this a reality! Also, to all of the sponsors that found away to take care of the teams that make our sport(s), hobbies, and passions possible, I couldn’t have done it without you!

Thanks again to all of our sponsors and family,
